Plan introduction
Since its inception in 2004, the Taiwan Health Promoting Schools (HPS) Initiative has been recognized by the majority of school teachers and staff and actively engaged by education units in various counties and cities. From 2010 to 2011, the Ministry of Education launched the second generation HPS mechanism, which has continued to be the development model of health promoting schools in Taiwan, emphasizing evidence-based practice and international communication.

From 2019 to the present, for the sustainable development of health promoting schools in Taiwan, we have proposed the framework concept of the third generation HPS, incorporating global trends with local needs to advocate the new HPS Initiative 3.0.
Planning main axis
The responsibility to care for children and adolescents as a valuable national human asset is important to schools and requires a strategy that is inclusive of the health needs of the entire school population and that makes appropriate use of health promoting opportunities. In other words, an early approach to the mission of maintaining student health through school health work needs to be more actively strengthened and expanded in order to achieve the goal of whole-person care.

In September 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a draft version of the World Standards for Health Promoting Schools, which sets out eight new standards to create a system of health promoting schools that is sustainable, responsive to school health and well-being, reflects the needs of schools and communities, and provides the necessary resources and support. Taiwan Health Promoting Schools Initiative 3.0 has developed two levels (government and school), six major areas, and eight standards with reference to world standards. In addition to more effective articulation during the school periods, it also emphasizes policy and leadership at the government level as well as "whole-school” oriented management at the school level, to strengthen full participation of all stakeholders in the initiative.
